    Just as I was starting to come back to SF...
    Should I sign off now or does this only happen once in a while?


    Not as much nowadays...

    With the exception of a few outfits I felt like I was back in the 70's.

    Nothing wrong with that.

    I haven't seen shoes and knots that big since the Grand Prize Game.

    That is a gorgeous tweed. I have something being made up right now that is very, very similar.

    'tis lovely. The OP would be better served by a smaller shirt collar methinks.

    Hey! Nice tweed!

    The shirt and tie are [​IMG] , and the fit is the usual, I assume?

    Shirt is a little big. Jacket is the correct size. Both, and the tie, were $0.99 thrift store finds so I'm not super-picky [​IMG]

    I like that you stick to your guns, but I think what will set you apart (from your peers) style wise is the fact that your clothes fit properly. Bagginess can be part of your style, I suppose, but certain basic things, like your neck collar should fit properly. While I think it is great that you are building your wardrobe with the thrift store stuff, I encourage you to be a bit more discriminating. I would think you would at least put some of the knowledge you obtain from SF to use, especially since you "know better."

    I would never wear a shirt this size (with a tie) on a Sunday or a gig, but this was a Tuesday outfit. Seeing as I am not on camera on Tuesdays, it is very unlikely that anyone that sees me on a weekday would notice if the shirt is slightly too large. Sorry, but I stick to my guns here too.
